Patience Jonathan losses another court case, in respect of $8.4million traced by the EFCC

Wife of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs Patience Jonathan has again lost at the Supreme court.

The Court has upheld the order of temporary forfeiture made by a Federal High Court in Lagos in respect of the $8.4million traced by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

The Supreme Court had fixed March 8, 2019, to deliver judgment in an appeal filed by former First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan challenging the powers of the EFCC for forfeiture of her properties when she has not been convicted for any offence.

In a judgment on Friday, a five-man panel of the court unanimously held that the appeal filed by Mrs. Jonathan, challenging the interim forfeiture, was without merit.

The court ordered Mrs. Jonathan to go before the Federal High Court to justify her ownership of the money to prevent its permanent forfeiture to the Federal Government.
